Hi everybody,

I recently bought a LOL Shield and a RTC and I want to make a digital clock like this:

Can anyone help me with the code? The library of LOL Shield is very complex and I can't find a way to start.

Thanks :)

Start with the LoL_Shield_FontTest.pde to see how to display characters.  Get the time from your clock chip and display it.

Have you figured out how to draw "10:48" in 14 columns?  That's less than three columns per character!  You may want to scroll the time through.

Hey John, thanks for the answer!

Yeah, I'm working with this .pde since yesterday and actually have no way to display what I want horizontally...So I found this clock:

Any idea of how to make that? I know I have to draw each point in the shield. In the library examples, have any one that I can use to draw each "pixel"?

Thanks!

I had some progress here. Looking to the library, I saw that I can use LedSign::Set to set any led on or off in the matrix.
Now I will draw the digit and let see what happens!

How about a TixClock (search with google to see examples) . . . I have successfully managed to get days, month, hours and minutes comfortably fitted onto the LoL Shield using this approach . . . and you get something a little more interesting and unique !
